"Today people live more by virtue of what the system does FOR them or TO them than by virtue of what they do for themselves. And what they do for themselves is done more and more along channels laid down by the system. Opportunities tend to be those that the system provides, the opportunities must be exploited in accord with rules and regulations if there is to be a chance of success. "
- Professor Ted, "Industrial Society and its Future"
I understand how the Doomsday clock works, and why it is total bs, but they aren't even hiding their Trump hate.

The Patreon model works for those people that want to monitize their hobbies. It replaces the back-office work for the artists, while organizing the billing for the patrons so that they can easily make payments to multiple artists.

I think I have a sulution to the illegal immigration problem. Mexico needs to vote to join the US as a collection of teritories.
It makes it so that all of the illegal immigrants are citizens, but also means that they can't send all of the hard earned money out of the country. The drug cartels would be within US territory, and thus subject to everything that the DEA could do to them. The southern border would be much smaller, and already has a wall.
And the liberals brains would explode. Win win
Anyone else ever notice that in the Facebag app, if you open up a conversation to read it, then close it without responding, you can never find it again.
I have to think this is intentional to prevent people from easily being able to jump on a browser on thier phone and actually fact check something before posting.

Not sure how many gamers are out there, but since I have no chance of making it to Fear the Con IX. I'll just help how I can.
We must agree right now that the Bill of Rights takes precedence over everything else and may not be suppressed by a pall of political correctness on campuses, in the media, in corporate life, or anywhere else. There is no right not to be offended by the free expression of others. Those of us who can afford it should sue those who try to deprive us of our freedom of speech. Mine is worth at least ten figures. "Revenge of the Cookie Monster" 31 January 2010 L. Neil Smith
